Individual, one-on-one coaching with one of our experienced, 5-star rated teeniors. This can take place anywhere from our office to your home, or even a local senior center, cafe or library.
Individual private session at OUR OFFICE: $49.95/per hour
Individual private session at YOUR HOME: $59.95/per hour
-If more than one person is being coached, please add $5.00 per hour to cost.
-If you request a home session and are located outside of our usual driving district , or if you have more sophisticated technical needs (i.e. sessions where the client is unaware of what the problem is, like home entertainment system or internet 'not working'), we reserve the right to add a small travel fee to cover our coach's time and gas). Your cost will always be disclosed to you up front.
One-on-one coaching, conducted in a group setting (i.e. simultaneous tutoring taking place in pairs, in a large room). Ideal for co-workers; friends; residents of retirement communities, etc. Money saver and popular choice for special events and presentations! Each person brings their own electronic device and list of questions for one-on-one, customized coaching.
Depends on number of attendees being coached. (Most common event: $399.95 for two-hours, with 10 people receiving one-on-one coaching. Includes supervising staff plus (4-8) teenior coaches. Contact us so we can discuss your idea and provide an estimate!
How do I book an appointment or a group event?
Call (505) 600-1297 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell us what kind of help you need, when you need it, and a member of our team will set you up! If you leave a message, you'll hear back from us within 24 hours (but usually the same day). Our offices are closed on Sundays.
Where will we meet for our private coaching session?
Anywhere you choose! We can meet at your home, our downtown office, a local senior center, coffee shop or library. Teeniors™ strives to arrange sessions that are comfortable and convenient for your needs.
How does a "private coaching session" work?
- First, we'll ask what kind of device you have (i.e. iPhone, Kindle, Windows laptop...) and what you'd like to learn to do with it. Then we'll set up the when and where.
- Second, we'll call or email you a confirmation with your teenior's name and all the details for your session.
- Your coach will meet you wearing a bright yellow "Teeniors" shirt so that you can easily identify him or her. You're also welcome to ask for photo ID.
- Our teeniors are fantastic personal tutors, so we continuously get 5-star reviews. They are patient, kind and love this work! Most importantly though, they understand. You can always ask them slow down, speak up, repeat things, and show you again,step-by-step how something is done. This is your coaching session.
- Private sessions in our office always take place in the presence of an adult staff member; home coaching takes place with a 'teenior' who is 18 years of age or older.
I have a Kindle / Apple TV / Smart TV / Amazon Echo / PC. Can Teeniors help me out with any of this stuff?
YES! Our Teeniors have expertise in a variety of technologies and we have "Teenior Pro" coaches who can help with all of the above. Call or email to learn more.
My phone doesn't text or sometimes drops calls / my internet or printer isn't working. Can you help me?
Probably. Great question - we are here to help you with questions in basic technology (i.e., operating your device, learning new apps and software, setting up your new printer/computer/cell phone/smart TV, etc.) That said, sometimes clients have a problem that has to do with their cell phone company, internet provider, or another issue that requires a special technician. Most of the time, Teeniors™ coaches are able to assess this and even solve the problem in person. Either way, you will need to pay for your teenior's time to assess this. We will always let you know whether your problem is something we can help with, or whether you’ll need to reach out to your service provider or another professional. If you need help with the latter, we can also arrange a Teeniors session to sit with you and help you through that call.
Do you offer training sessions in other areas of New Mexico, like Taos / Roswell / Gallup / Alamogordo / Najajo Nation?
At the moment, Teeniors™ offers coaching in the greater Albuquerque area, as well as Santa Fe, Tijeras, Rio Rancho, Bernalillo, and Los Lunas/Belen - but we are hoping to grow! As a new organization created in 2015, we continue to evaluate how we can best serve each of communities. Our goal is to offer more coaching outside of these areas but we need your help to grow. If you have questions or suggestions that you’d like us to hear, please contact us.
Why do you charge for Teeniors?
Great question! To pay the bills, is the short answer. Part of the mission of Teeniors™ is to providing paid, meaningful jobs to young adults. And like any other small business or nonprofit, we need to cover costs of running the organization (salaries, office rent, legal fees, printed materials, website, software, advertising, etc.). We offer a phenomenal service for your money and we take our work very seriously. Our coaches apply to become teeniors. They are recommended by teachers and parents, interviewed, screened and oriented to work with you as a tutor. Only the most impressive young adults are kept as part of this elite team and we pay far more than the state's minimum wage ($10-15/hour). Volunteer teens and young adults simply would not be sustainable in the long run, and we strive to be self-sustaining. We are confident that you'll find your coaching session to be worth every penny.
How much does it cost?
As of July 2018, our private, one-on-one coaching sessions start at $49.95 per hour (with slight variations depending on location). Our average group events range between $250-450 depending on the number of seniors being coached and thus, the number of teeniors / staff needed. We receive continuous 5-star reviews and stand by our work!
Our primary goal is to empower older adults to connect with loved ones and the world through technology, while also providing paid, meaningful work to young adults. We charge far less than our competitors, and while we strive to be self-sustaining, we are also aware that not everyone can afford to pay. This is why we sponsor pro-bono coaching and community events for low-income clients through our own volunteer time. It's part of our effort to help seniors from all walks of life. See our homepage for upcoming classes or contact us for more details at (505) 600-1297 or email@example.com.
